What we do:

Construction Claims

We litigate claims.

We represent owners and contractors in all manner of construction contract disputes, from change orders and delay claims to defective work claims. 

We follow the projects.

We are hired to litigate projects across the United States and abroad. Domestically, our attorneys have litigated cases in California, Nevada, New Mexico, Minnesota, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington DC. Internationally, we have arbitrated cases in Hong Kong, Australia, Ireland, and Dubai. 

Our approach.

We begin each representation with a practical and cost-effective plan for handling the claim. We know that a good litigation team involves a minimum number of people working at an optimal level with clear direction to maximize efficiency and reduce cost. We also believe it is important to have continuous communication regarding progress towards goals, budget, and timing. 

Our contacts.

We have a strong network of relationships with top-tier construction experts in all major disciplines, including structural engineers, architects, scheduling experts, and forensic accountants. We reduce legal costs by identifying and retaining the right consultants and managing those consultants efficiently, the way that a good general contractor manages subcontractors.
